“Can you tell me where to go?’ “Can’t talk to orange,” one girl said. (Muchamore 67) The culture “Confused” applies to James in this situation because when he wakes up he has no clue where he is or how he got there.

The two rednecks followed the girl when she was walking home from getting groceries for her
